Fed up with all those make-over programmes on the telly? Me too. Okay, so there are some good tips to be had, but let's face it, most of us are a bit more simple in our DIY thinking than the TV experts. Hands up if you've attempted a total make-over in the Laurie Bowen or Linda Barker style... no, I didn't think so. Practical Householder is a refreshing magazine because as the title suggests, it is full of hints and tips for just about anyone who owns a home. Even those among you who try to avoid DIy like the plage probably find yourself, screwdriver in hand, replacing a plug or putting up a shelf. Not all the content is that basic - you can still learn how to design a garden, clad the kitchen ceiling or laminate a floor if you wish - you choose your own level with this magazine. In addition, there are product tests and reviews that compare everything from electric drills to glue guns. Very handy, given the modern choice. Practical Householder is available through WH Smiths and other leading magazine retailers. You can also pick a copy at the till s of your local B & Q. Got your own house? Can you afford to be without it?
